50 Years of AIMS, and my Dad #Proud #344

Last year was the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Association of Irish Musical Societies (AIMS). My Dad (Joe) was once National President of this organisation in 1980/1981. Last evening, at The Lodge pub in Carnew, Dad was presented with a commemoration pin presented to all former Presidents of AIMS. They also presented him with a framed photo with the AIMS chain of office from 1981. He looks great - in the photo he was 50 years of age. Today, with the pin, he is 84 (almost 85) - and still going strong. Congrats Dad!
